Army can't bat and bowl
THE Barmy Army just can't take a trick.
The best of the army took on the Middle Park Cricket Club at Albert Park yesterday in a 30-over match to salvage some national pride.
Chasing the "Convicts" 165, the "Pommies" lost 26 wickets for 142.
Their performance off the ground was far more impressive. About 700 spectators drank 50 slabs and three barrels of beer -- much to the delight of the Middle Park club treasurer.
Londoner Dave Burmage got to bed at 7am but was up a few hours later to claim two wickets for the English before passing out in the bar. "My reflexes ain't really with it at the moment," he said.
